What is peach cobbler?
A cobbler is a baked fruit dessert without a bottom crust. It does however have a top crust that is a kind of biscuit dough or crumble instead of a traditional pastry or pie dough.
How to make peach cobbler?
It's easier than you might think!
If using fresh peaches, go ahead and peel and slice them to equal 2 cups or more. In a saucepan over medium heat, add 1 cup of sugar, 2-3 tablespoons water and peaches and simmer until sugar is dissolved and peaches are soft.
Next, melt 1 stick of butter and pour into a 9×9-inch baking dish.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, ¾ cup sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder and 3/4 cup milk until smooth. Pour over butter. Do not stir.
Spoon peaches over batter. Do not stir. This seems backwards but it works I promise! Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.
Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until brown and bubbly.
Let cool and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
Can I use canned peaches instead of fresh?
If you're in a pinch and don't have time to peel fresh peaches then canned or frozen peaches will work in this recipe. Of course yummy straight-from-the-tree fresh peaches are the best. But, sometimes you just get the hankering for a good peach cobbler in the middle of the winter and they just aren't available in most places.
What is the difference in a dump cake and a cobbler?
This recipe is a traditional peach cobbler recipe that is easy to make. However, you can easily turn this into a dump peach cobbler recipe. The difference being with a dump cake you pretty much just dump all the ingredients without any other prep. 🙂 Makes it a great choice when you're in a hurry!
Use 3 (21 oz) cans of undrained peaches and a box of cake mix instead. Dump the peaches into a baking dish and sprinkle with the cake mix. Top cake mix with 1-2 sticks of patted butter, and sprinkle cinnamon on top of the mixture before placing into a 350°F oven for 45-50 minutes.
If you're short on time, this option is just as tasty!
Does peach cobbler need to be refrigerated?
Cobblers can be left out on the counter overnight or for a couple of days. We recommend refrigerating if you don't think you can eat within a day or two.
We NEVER have that problem at our house though! 🙂
How to reheat peach cobbler?
The best way to reheat cobbler is the same method you cooked it. In the oven!
Reheat at 350°F for about 15 minutes or until warmed through. Cover with aluminum foil if it looks like it's getting too browned. Or you can pop in the microwave if you're in a hurry too! 🙂
